7 Good Ways to Eliminate Gas and Bloating

Today, we are going to learn 7 amazing ways to stop Eliminate Gas and Bloating.

Chew your food

When you chew, particularly carbohydrate-rich foods, your saliva has an enzyme called ptyalin and it helps you to pre-digest the food. So all those difficult-to-digest grains and sugars chew your food 50 times every bite.

There are people that had actually cured themselves from digestive diseases from chewing their food more thoroughly.

Chia seeds

Why is it so good for digestion? It’s high in fiber. But a particular type of fiber called mucilaginous fiber makes chia seeds expand in your gut and help you absorb and then eliminate some gases.

Now anytime you increase fiber intake, you’re going to have a change in your bacteria, so you might experience a little gas and bloating when you add fiber to your diet. But guess what, chia, with its special fibrous components can help that. Chia can be ground and sprinkled in smoothies, on foods, or because chia has that gelling effect, you can actually eat chia r mix it in recipes straight.

Two to three tablespoons of chia a day can help reduce gas, bloating, and eliminate digestive problems, and even help with constipation.

Essential oils

We’re going to tell about essential oils, and two of my favorites are peppermint and ginger. I just love peppermint right on my tongue. I put it on my toothbrush on top of the toothpaste. It’s greatly mixed in room temperature or warm water. Same goes for ginger.

Here is a great tonic. Take some lemon juice, warm water, some honey, either raw, organic, or Manuka honey, two to four drops of peppermint, and ginger essential oil. Not only would that taste great but it will do wonders for your tummy.

You can also mix peppermint and ginger in a carrier oil and rub it on your abdomen. Try using an oil that’s very penetrating like coconut oil and you can diffuse them. In fact, at home, I’m diffusing peppermint oil right now. Makes you alert and calms your tummy.

Kiwi and fig

The kiwi fruit actually helps with constipation and can reduce gas and bloating. It’s also high in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids coming from the seeds.

Kiwi and fig, particularly raw figs, are wonderful to help you digest proteins and suit your gut and help you get over constipation. And figs also help to absorb toxins.

Digestive enzymes

Digestive enzymes help you digest proteins, carbs, fats, fiber, and even beans and dairy, and other difficult-to-digest substances. Take a digestive enzyme capsule before meals to get the benefits. You can even see this work by taking a digestive enzyme capsule into, emptying it in oatmeal, mixing it few times, and the oatmeal will go from being thick to runny as these enzymes break down the food.

Now, remember, when it comes to eating, you’re not what you eat, you’re what you digest, assimilate, and absorb. Taking enzymes one to three caps before the meal is great.


Consume probiotics on an empty stomach. It helps to colonize the gut and dislodge toxins also creating their own enzymes 24/7. It actually creates enzymes.

I once heard that enzymes are the teeth of probiotics. They help break down substances that are lodged in your gut, they support the immune system that’s found in your gut, and they help you digest foods in your colon so they don’t linger and cause gas, bloating, and constipation.

My favorite probiotics are known as soil-based organisms or SBOs. I also like Lactobacillus plantarum which is my favorite lactic acid bacteria, and the friendly yeast, Saccharomyces boulardii.

Bone Broth

Bone broth is the ultimate gut-friendly food. It has polysaccharides or what you would call glycosaminoglycans that soothe the lining of the gut and it can help your joints, skin, hair, nails. Look up the benefits of bone broth online. It is the quintessential superfood. It can help reduce gas, bloating, constipation, and help your overall health like nothing else.

Quick Recap

Chew your food, fifty chews per mouthful. Chia seed, great for the gut, swells, helps your tummy feel better. Peppermint and ginger essential oil, kiwi, and fig to add enzymes and healthy fiber. Digestive enzymes, one to three before each meal. Probiotics, SBOs on an empty stomach. Bone broth every day. And eat mono meals if you can’t digest your food.
